An Introduction to Mozambique

Mozambique is fast emerging as one of the hottest travel destinations for the discerning traveller. It offers a long and beautiful coral-fringed coastline with translucent waters and some of the worlds best scuba diving opportunities. This coupled with increasing game safaris and the remnants of the old Portuguese outposts makes this is a must for those wishing to escape and experience the real Africa.

Whether you find yourself relaxing on a secluded beach, soaking up the rich culture or swimming the coral rich waters, Mozambique offers luxury, beauty and a responsible attitude towards the development and sustainability of its long term future.

Mozambique is a vast country – nearly four times larger than the UK, with each region offering its own unique attractions. In major cities and coastal regions you will find accommodation to suit all styles, budgets and tastes. Inland travel gets more rugged with the road network still under development and a small range of domestic flights, however these areas can offer authentic African safari experiences and an unforgettable insight into a traditional way of life long since forgotten in the Western World.

Mozambique’s two major centres, Maputo and Inhambane, offer an exotic kaleidoscope of art, music and delicious local food as well as a lively nightlife scene. Spend yours days immersing yourself in the fascinating local culture, marvelling at the impressive colonial architecture and interacting with the fabulously friendly local inhabitants.

Those seeking a more remote getaway can head for the isolated beaches of Benguerra Island; the historic Portuguese and Muslim architecture of Mozambique Island; or the outstanding wildlife of Gorongosa National Park. However you choose to spend your time in this exceptionally scenic destination you are likely to leave with a heavy heart and a burning desire to return time and time again.
